    I've tried looking on the net for an explanation but couldn't finals anything explaining it. I'm a new android user with a rooted phone and in running the perfect storm on my thunderbolt.

    Just wanting to know what a custom kernal is and what it does as well as how it is benefitial? Am I able to run a custom kernal while I'm running perfect storm or is it something completely seperate. I'm sorry for the 21 questions but I feel like i need to know and understand all of this kind of stuff if I'm going to be using this forum as well as have a root thunderbolt.

    Thanks for the info in advance
